Medical Master Class at the Soccerex Americas Forum

Thu 25th Sep 2014 | Football Industry Events

Three of North America’s leading medical professionals will deliver a pioneering and interactive conference session on the current state of the professional soccer medical industry at the Soccerex Americas Forum, 21-22 October in Barbados.

Major League Soccer Medical Coordinator, John Gallucci, New York Red Bulls Head Team Physician, Dr. Riley J. Williams and Herrera Sports Medicine Founder and Orthopaedic Surgeon, Dr Mauricio Herrera will present and discuss the latest procedures, treatments and technologies which are reducing recovery periods, preventing injuries and improving performances, saving millions of pounds in the process.

Gallucci is one of the most important figures in medical regulation and governance in professional soccer, where he is responsible for the writing and execution of the league’s medical policies and procedures for over 600 professional soccer players throughout 18 MLS cities.

As well as his role with the New York Red Bulls, Dr. Williams is a physician at the Hospital for Special Surgery, a FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence, one of only three hospitals in the United States to receive this distinction. He has also held senior positions with the New York Mets and New York Giants.

Dr. Herrera is one of the leading orthopaedic surgeons in the United States specialising in Sports Medicine and Arthroscopic Surgery, with a particular focus on ACL reconstruction. He has held roles with NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers and the University of Pittsburgh’s Panthers football team.

Soccerex CEO Duncan Revie commented: “The American sports industry has always been the leader in certain sectors of the game and the medical side is one of them. The session will stir debate and promote best practices amongst the industry, whilst also highlighting the enormous business opportunities associated with that, for which our delegates are extremely lucky to be a part of.”

The three speakers join a growing list of industry leaders who will be speaking at the Americas Forum including CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb, MLS Commissioner Don Garber, FIFA & CONCACAF ExCo member Sonia Bien-Aime, Orlando City Founder and President Phil Rawlins, 2014 FIFA World Cup LOC CEO Ricardo Trade, Manchester United and England Legend Bryan Robson and many more.
